5 “Lick The Bowl Clean” Crockpot Meals For Large Families

Crockpot Chicken Chili


Via thepinningmama.com

I absolutely love a warm bowl of chili on a cold day. This  Super Easy Crockpot Chicken Chili from The Pinning Mama is fast to throw together and one of my favorite picks. Serve chili over rice, salad (taco salad!) or just all by itself. I usually make a big pot all at once, and leftovers are frozen in muffin tins for lunches. Two muffins tins worth of chili is about the right size for a bowl of soup per person, and one muffin tin nicely tops a baked potato. None of this delicious chicken chili will go to waste, your family will be asking for seconds!

Crockpot Beef Saffron And Mushrooms


Mmm, I can almost smell this delicious Beef Saffron And Mushrooms through my computer. This crockpot dinner is super easy to make and makes a lot for a large family. Brown your beef and mushrooms before adding it to the crockpot alongside delicious saffron and broth. By dinnertime, your beef is falling apart delicious and you only have to make a vegetable and some rice to round out the meal.

Crockpot Banana Bread Oatmeal

When you are planning your meals, it is easy to think of your crockpot as the item of choice for dinner. Don’t discount this handy device to have breakfast steaming and ready when you wake up in the morning! If you love the taste of banana bread, you need to try this Overnight Crockpot Banana Bread Oatmeal from I Heart Eating. With the taste of bananas, walnuts (optional!), and cinnamon this is oatmeal even the pickiest eater can enjoy. I also like that it is a vegetarian meal that includes a balanced amount of protein. This recipe serves 6-8, but could also be doubled for heartier appetites. Yum!

Crockpot Lasagna

Here is a warm and comforting dish that is sure to become a family favorite. Try making this Crockpot Lasagna from Marty’s Musings. I love that with this recipe you can prepare it the night before and skip boiling the lasagna noodles. I always make sure when I’m layering that each layer of noodles has a layer of sauce either directly before or after it to make sure my noodles are delicious. Try this one paired with a salad, you won’t be disappointed.

Crockpot Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Every once in a while during the wintertime, I get a strong pull to make Baked Potato Soup, and Happiness Is Homemade brings it home with her crockpot version. She has taken everything that you love about a baked potato and poured it into a delicious bowl of soup. I like to let my family customize their toppings, which makes dinner more fun for everyone. Delicious!
